This is one of two movies released to cinemas in 2013 with the same premise: the garrisoning of the White House by criminals who hold the President hostage. The other is Olympus Has Fallen (2013). Both movies also reference the White House fire of 1814. See more »

The kind of movie you'll watch when you need to kill time
I think Roland Emmerich is giving up... You can tell since 10000BC. Channing Tatum is just being Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx is the worst possible candidate for this role. Watching the Kardashians would have been a lot more productive.
IT looks as if they have taken the story line out of a "24" episode. Everything about this movie is just plain,lazy and repetitive. There's no effort from any part, neither the production nor the actors, except for Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance, who I believe was great as usual. Don't expect the cutting edge special effects of previous Emmerich's movies.
It's a good movie to watch while you are doing your house chores.
